Ancient ERA Persia – The Sound of Fairy Tales in Ancient Orient

A collection of sounds from forgotten places of the middle east.
Create your own melodies with 28 (!) fully playable instruments, deep sampled, with true legato and glissandi, different dynamics and lots of articulations

Once again, Eduardo Tarilonte seduces you into almost forgotten sounding worlds. This time, he moves to capture the sounds of the birthplace of magic and mystic of some of the oldest civilizations. Experience arcane sounds such as being heard in Arabian Nights, the soundtrack of desert sand trickling away in time and music that makes the Prince of Persia dance.

Following his works of Forest Kingdom, Desert Winds, Epic World and ERA Medieval Legends, Eduardo Tarilonte has dedicated this library to the sound of the ancient orient: Ancient ERA Persia.

GUI and Box

Ancient ERA Persia was created over a period of two years and comes as an extensive library with popular and less known instruments from the Middle East inspiring your fantasy by its touching sounds.

Therefore, this library is the best possible choice for movie soundtracks and television documentaries of this region. At the same time, the library is suited for traditional music productions and also provides a perfect background for games taking place in the Middle East.

For Ancient ERA Persia, Eduardo Tarilonte has recorded 28 percussion-, wind- and stringed-instruments in highest quality and finest detail. In addition, you will find authentically performed phrases as well as inspiring sound atmospheres. The instruments offer all articulations being used in the phrases. Several microtunings allow the use of every desired tuning for the instruments.

video demos

Just for the percussions, there are 1.000 loops in different tempos and rhythms beside the playable instruments.

Ancient ERA Persia brings the sounds and musical atmosphere of the Middle East, as it sounded in former times, into the modern DAW-supported production environment. The carefully programmed user-interface of the Engine player allows easy and fast work with this library in a way that musicians can be inspired by the sounds and fully unfold their creativity.

Ancient ERA Persia is suited for different applications and genres. The spectrum covers scoring for antique compositions with authentic timbres, fantasy-games, movie soundtracks and new age songs.

The sounds of Ancient ERA Persia are really unique and cannot be found in any other library. The excellent choice of instruments, articulations and sound atmospheres provides the musician and producer with an extensive compendium with as good as no sound missing.

  • Bendhir
  • Daf 
  • Darbuka 
  • Davul
  • Dayre
  • Riq
  • Riq plastic
  • Tombak


  • Turkish Mey High

The instruments of this 17 gigabytes spanning library consist of extensive multisamples (24 bit, 44.1kHz) with several dynamic layers, multiple articulations, round-robins as well as real legato- and glissando-samples.


Ancient ERA Persia was recorded at Eldana Studios in Dueñas, Spain by Jorge Calderón and Eduardo Tarilonte. All instruments have been played by virtuosos of the subject including Efrén López, Michalis Kouloumis, Stellios Petrakis, Jerome Salomon and Iván Karlón.

For the recording of the instruments, selected Kahayan U47- and Neumann U87-microphones were used with API-preamplifiers and Kahayan Epsilon summing amplifiers. In this library, the instruments were being captured intentionally close without significant room ambience, giving the user full control of the following sound-design and effect selection. This is why the sounds of Ancient ERA Persia may easily be combined with other libraries of Eduardo Tarilonte.

Ancient Era – Persia will set you back for 259EUR and I think it is worth every penny. This is truly a one of a kind sample library that has no competition on the market. As I have said at the beginning of this review, Eduardo Tarilonte’s libraries are true gems and work of art and Ancient Era – Persia is no exception!

Fazit (Auszug)

Mit Ancient ERA Persia knüpft Eduardo Tarilonteauf beeindruckende Weise an Desert Winds und ERA Mediaval Legends II an: Die erstklassige Audioqualität der dynamisch und artikulationsreich spielbaren Instrumente sind unter den Ethno-Libraries ein Klasse für sich.Auch die Mischung aus Klassikern und seltenen Instrumenten ist einzigartig. Mit Percussion-, Saiten-, und Blasinstrumenten erhält man ein vielköpfiges, orientalisches Ethno-Ensemble, das neben der Filmmusik auch Ethno-Pop bedient. 

Den ganzen Test finden Sie im Keys Heft 08/2017

BEAT 5,5


Ob Sie Film- oder Game-Musik, World Musik oder Ethno-Pop produzieren: Ancient ERA Persia punktet als umfangreiche Sammlung bemerkenswert expressiv und nuancenreich spielbarer Soloinstrumente, die im Kopfkino Bilder aus 1001 Nacht hervorrufen, Für noch mehr Authentizität können Sie bei Bedarf mit den ausdrucksvollen Phrasen sorgen, deren Tempo jedoch leider nicht zum Hosttempo synchronisiert  wird. Klanglich bewegt sich Ancient ERA Persia auf gewohnt hohem Qualitäts-Level – eine weitere exzellente Kollektion von Eduardo Tarilonte.

Final Thoughts

As always, Eduardo Tarilonte made a library that will be automatically ordered by people who already have some of his libraries. It is not a standard sound library with a wide collection of all possible articulations for one or two instruments but a collection of many different instruments and tools that will help you to tell a story in the times of ancient Persia. ERA Persia is the best tool for that purpose, as Eduardo is a great storyteller. If you are in media music production then you are reading this article just to prove to yourself that you did the right thing by buying this library in advance. If this is not the case, then it is maybe a good time to check at least some audio and video demo clips that you can find on the Best Service Era Persia webpage.

Ancient ERA – Persia is a great collection of loops, phrases, instruments and soundscapes covering one very specific era and place. A perfect tool for all games, media and movie composers.

If they'd had virtual instrument libraries in ancient Persia they might have sounded like this. But what is a Kaval, anyway? Jay Asher found out with help from Best Service.  


The sound, the depth of the sampling, and the attention to detail; the GUI is so beautiful that you may want to download the wallpaper from the website. There are also videos on the website that you can simply click on to learn more about each instrument. I have not yet taken the time to do so, but I surely will. If you want or need these kind of sounds, it would be tough to beat this library.

"Checking Out the instruments I really was impressed. For the mutli-sampled instruments, playback is crisp and clear with plenty of impacts and low end. Each of the instruments seem to contain that added human quality of finger slides, breaths, and touch that add a beautiful level of realism to playback of the great collections of legato, glissando, trills and ornamentation articulations." - db

Digital Notes 5 stars


Mit Ancient ERA Persia ist Eduardo Tarilonte mal wieder ein großer Wurf gelungen. Die Instrumente klingen absolut authentisch und sind, durch die diversen Stimmungen bei den Saiteninstrumenten, auch für Musik aus den unterschiedlichsten Regionen der Welt geeignet. Was im Übrigen zeigt, wie weit sich diese Instrumente im Laufe der Jahrhunderte verbreitet haben. Vervollständigt wird die Library durch Loops, Phrasen und Soundscapes, welche sich nicht nur für altertümliche, persische Musik eignen, sondern auch modernen Kompositionen einen eigenen Karakter verleihen können.

This was an easy purchase as I had already purchased Forest Kingdoms and Era, as always incredible sounds that are tons of fun to play around with and make my projects sound that much more professional

Wow. This thing sounds fantastic! You have the facts on the page about the details on the library. But this is instantly playable out of the box without a lot of massaging. This means even though the product is deeply sampled and has a fantastic variety of articulations per instrument (available via keyswitches) you can start playing immediately without a learning curve. You will find the instrument sounds are so inviting and inspiring. When you kick in the keyswitches it just magnifies an already great product. This product has made it into a new production which I should be posting soon.
